Hey those drums of yours look Great

so far,the plastic hoop thing seems to be something they did on the six lug bass drums
Yes, that's what I assume as well. At a certain time, close to the end of Star, they indeed also offered plastic hoops for their 'D-model' - obviously the cheaper version with six lugs only, see right side above:
The Star bass drums I've seen so far with plastic hoops also had inlays/ notches for inlays always.

Note: perhaps these hoops were the forerunners for Tama's black 'Accutune' plastic bass drum hoops (no inlays) later.

Cheers, Ralf
